Add-on debugging - consistently not working for me

about:debugging - load temporary add-on. then “inspect”. The debugger does not show my content script source (only the background script).

Help says: reload the page while debugger window is already open. But that does not help.
I mean debugging is the key use case of using “temporary add-on” functionality.

Any ideas? thanks

Content scripts are not in the extension debugger:

Also note that content scripts that are not active (as in, have no pending actions) usually don’t show up in the page debugger.

TIP: Also checkout the debugger statement:
